it clear while we don't have jurisdiction over religion in the same way we don't over sexual orientation, what we're seeing in all of these -- and all of these are case by case, you can't just broad sweep the laws -- when students are bullied and harassed in this world because of religion, in most instances a lot of that is not about race or religion, it's because. perception that students that share certain religious traits also share certain ethnicities and that is discrimination and that falls under title 6. it is not just about enforcing the laws that make it clear how the laws apply. it is, though, as we said, you can't get at this through enforcement alone. this is a culture that tolerates this and in too many ways promotes it. as tom mentioned we have an unprecedented partnership not just between our agencies but agencies across the federal government that the president has convened to bring our best resources and minds to bear to do something about it. there is now a web site, stopbullying.gov where a tool kit is being developed and these kinds of best practices are being promo
. it is not the same religion, but we have much in common. >> but others could not accept the idea of muslims praying in a former christian church. >> i think it would be better if they set up a mosque someplace else in town. if the christians keep giving ground, we will lose our faith and identity. after all, france is a christian country. >> the sale of the church would not have had a happy ending. for the archdiocese responsible for the church got involved and decided instead to sell the church to a charity. the bishop justified the decision by saying the paris- based charity was nondenominational. this even though it is called the fraternity of st. aloysius and is dedicated to the same st. as the church. they are collecting donations to buy the building. their motto "stop the mosque" makes their position clear. >> we are opposed to converting the church into a mosque. christenings, weddings, and funerals were once held there. now that will all be wiped away. the church will be something else entirely. we have gathered thousands of signatures from all over france and from canada and switzerland. s
talk about religion. you would hear the bible mentioned constantly. this is not what we're used to in the united states. it is almost as though there is no need for god, no need for religion and justice in politics, so there is supposed to be a separation of church and state over here. we can't have a separation of state and morality. songs like "dreamer," it is the same thing. tavis: it is a rare thing to hear prince open up on those visits. we have been grateful for those visits. we leave you with another memorable moment in 2004. he wanted to reunite with former revolution band member wendy malvoin for a special performance. this was an unexpected surprise. as we closed out that show, we will tonight with a performance by prince and wendy malvoin, an acoustic version of the song "reflection." as always, keep the faith. ♪ the glasso catch before it falls ♪ can you turn on the stereo ♪ ♪ i want to play those songs, it's about love ♪ water theemember to plants today ♪ , too busy busy looking at you ♪ ♪ oh baby whens nice to know that bodies wear out ♪ ♪ we ca
religion, but particularly islam, there's not always a clear understanding to what the first amendment guarantees, which is the right to teach about a religion but not proselytize about it. i think there's fear of associating with anyone associated with islam. there are events outside our control that creates more interest and unfortunately also makes people more afraid. one of the programs we are about to launch is putting all our content online so a teacher in north dakota where there are no muslim, potentially, no expert can come to her classroom, they can go to our web site and download the content and teach the things we are teaching. >> i think partnerships are the best way to overcome the limitations because we all have limitations. and sometimes it's just visibility. we actually have on our web site 50 short films and one of them is a muslim student from a school in fremont going to a school in arinda talking about what it's like going to school as a muslim in the united states and they are asking questions and you see we are all kids in school and we have more similaritie
what religion or non-religion they have. it is a matter of trying to be honest, to make sure people are accountable, answerable, and responsible, especially when it comes to the orphan and the widow and the fatherless and motherless and poor, gay, bisexual, black, brown. let us never forget our precious indigenous brothers and sisters 1492, world war rahman one. i'm going to talk about it if i'm the last person in the country that does. my brothers and sisters, too. brother danny knows what i'm talking about. the [applause] that is a tradition that is open to all of as a matter what color we are. it is the choice is that we may. are we going to be so seduced and tinted dollar-tinted by the money dangled, the status and wealth offered, or are we going to be on our way to the graves. finally getting to our bodies, we say, this person was on fire for something bigger than just the ground and the worms. it was about love, justice for justice is what love looks like in public. there is only justice that generates and is something less than justice, you're going to need the love supreme o
places of worship and pray for help. again, not to dispa raj religion and i believe you guide your life the way you do but this is a lawmaker talking about let's turn to prayer. how do you have a reasonable conversation when someone sees that as the be all, end all solution there? not a rejection of religion but talking about laws here. >> yeah. we are. one of the things you see from this president and this commission that biden had is they're reaching out to faith leaders to have them to be a part of the conversation. >> not telling them to pray. they're saying talk to your people, go to the church and get the laus. you know? >> that's right. but i do think perry's statements, you're from texas. i'm from south carolina. i think it is a reach for some of these folks in these states, red state democrats to figure out how to talk about this legislation. you saw from the president. he didn't say gun control. he talked about gun violence. and they're very much making the point that this isn't about taking people's guns away. it's about reducing gun violence. i do think he'll have to sit dow
take out representatives of the 5 major religions and do the same thing and we model in front of high school and middle school students how the faiths can sit down like we are sitting here today and have conversations about our commonalities but about our differences as well. many of the comments we get from students is, wow, you guys can sit up there and talk because most of the pictures our students see are the ones that have been playing across our screens the last 2 or 3 days. we hope by challenging that we can prevent bullying and harassment we've been seeing here today. >> thank you, amina stacy is manager of communications for the los angeles giants. >> if you think about what our mission is, you probably think our mission is to win the world series every year, which hopefully this year we're on the right track, but actually our mission statement, we just went through an exercise but our mission statement has always been to enrich the community through innovation. and it's very, i am very proud of the fact that the giants have been able to take that mission and bring it into

group to offset that donation with its own set of books. >> i respect all religions and all faiths, but i want them treated fairly. i think too many times the christian faith is not treated fairly. if they want to have books about the muslim faith, let's have equal books about the christian. i'd rather see the $150 million spent to remodel schools in craven county or build schools at craven community. >> well, there's been no outcry at that school over a lack of christian reading material at the school. on top of that he says he wants the $150 million to go to other projects. here's the thing. that $150 million is the entire budget, not just this project. he's got that all wrong. and if helping communities in need why did he vote against the sandy relief aid? >>> finally now matter how rational president obama is, the extreme end of the pro gun side will always hear something like this courtesy of jimmy kimmel this time. >> why does president obama want to take everybody's guns away? >> everybody's guns are going to be taken away. >> that's right. the federal government is about to
is the redneck americans clinging to their guns and religion. 99% of the gun violence is in the city. >> bob: they have three strikes you're out. >> greg: i'm talking about a federal law for handgun crime. why isn't omar abdel-rahman rahg about the 500 people that died in chicago. >> eric: he is inses tent to use the newtown massacre as the crisis that is not to be wasted. >> bob: not a bad idea either. the kids and you are talking actually about the national rifle -- freddie how many dead kids in philadelphia? >> kimberly: now you want to ban handguns? you're liberal kama sutro. so many positions -- >> eric: on that note, what are the odds the media does their job in the next four years and reports the truth about the obama administration? we'll place our wagers next. ♪ ♪ [ ship horn blows ] no, no, no! stop! humans. one day we're coming up with the theory of relativity, the next... not so much. but that's okay -- you're covered with great ideas like optional better car replacement from liberty mutual insurance. total your car and we give you the money to buy one a model year newer. lea
member paul hagut says he thinks the religion is a cult. the church dismisses him as the hypocrite of hollywood. we'll speak with him and talk to the author of a new book that explores the link between scientology and hollywood. >>> we want to get to breaking news. nbc's nichelle cokosinkski liven london. >> reporter: this has been changing by the moment. first, the report that a number of hostages has escaped. now that algerians have raided the facility and a number of have been killed, including hostages. 41 people held, among them americans, british, norwegians, and they called this retribution for french intervention in neighboring mali against militant there. at this hour scattered reports out of the algerian desert. that large bp gas facility, that a standoff is going on. algerian army has militants and dozens of international hostages surrounded. among them, americans. >> in order to protect their safety, i'm not going to get into numbers, i'm not going to get into names, not going to get into any further details as we continue to work on this issue with the algerian authori

: senator rubio is right. in an unguarded moment when he was senator obama heat mock religion and people who claimed done for security. that is an indication of his feelings about them. when it comes to a tradition the city of chicago which was so anti second amendment the supreme court of the united states, a two majority opinions to tell chicago you can't stop people from purchasing and keeping arms in their home. the president comes from that tradition and senator rubio is correct. charles: let's check the markets. last time we checked the dow was up 32 points and starting to gain fraction of 53 points right now. let's go to the stock exchange. ebay had a good number. how are those shares faring? nicole: ebay it is that are new multi-year high up about 3% at $54.52. they give a forecast for 2014 in line with analyst expectations but the latest quarter which included the holiday shopping season did very well for a couple reasons. they worked on customer service and such including free shipping, making returns easier. those are the factors that have been cited. the other thing we should not
